Swimming Lessons

First Swimming Lesson

Clovine went for her first swimming lesson on 8 March together with Alyssa!
It all started when Yi Xian asked me if I'm interested to let Clovine join Alyssa for swimming lesson months ago with a private swimming instructor.

Things learnt: Blowing bubbles, wearing goggles, water kicking

Before lesson started, the kids were chilling by the pool.

Always a good time and place for this cheeky to be cheeky.

Coach came and lesson started together with another 2 kids who belong to Yixian's friends. Ansel didi was damn enthusiastic to join the class even though he's not in the class! He kept wanting to sit close to the class and wouldn't want to leave. 
Even listened to the coach attentively and did what the class was told. Haha it was damn adorable.

Ansel didi feeling a little out and decided to just chill and get emotional. Lol.

 Didi excitedly joins in the class and blends in very well.

 While learning water kicking, didi just conveniently lies his head on the steps and we couldn't stop laughing because it looks like he's cheeks were too heavy!!! 

 The kids totally enjoyed water kicking!

After class, went for lunch at Ichiban together at Causeway point with an intention of looking for a new thermal swim suit for our girls because the pool shaded and the we were worried after seeing them shivering in the water especially Clovine. Instead of getting a thermal one in the beginning, we got them long sleeves top instead as we were more concerned of them getting tanned!
Didn't expect the condo pool to be so shaded away from the sun we occasional winds which made my poor girl shiver non stop.

Despite the shivering, glad the girls still enjoyed their lesson and can't wait meet again next week!
Thankfully there were no tantrums from them or any sudden quarrels between them as Alyssa and Clovine kinda hit it off. 

Love that Alyssa is always camera ready but obviously I can't say the same for Clovine -.-

 Sorry Yixian because my daughter is one cheeky girl and she just can't wait to influence everyone with it. Lol.

Went searching for a swimsuit after meal and check out this picture I took of Hubby with the two kids!!! Extremely love it because it's so fatherly and well it seems like he'll be able to handle another kid right?! So yay I'll still be able to dump another kid on him when we have another in future! Hahaha.
Carrying both kids is the best way to train his muscles! Btw can you believe that didi is heavier than Clovine now even though he's only 2 years old?!

Second Swimming Lesson

Clovine wore her thermal swimsuit to class which totally helped with the shivering a lot. Chanced upon the swimsuit in a swim shop at paragon which is retailed at a more reasonable price compared to a professional swim gear shop for the same brand!

Things learnt: Hand placement, one second under water, more bubbles blowing

 Clovine very fascinated with wearing goggles even though she still have not gotten used to opening her eyes properly when wearing it. Lol.

During this lesson, all the kids get to try out blowing bubbles fully under the water for just one second. Of course Clovine didn't ace off on the first try because she forgotten about not swallowing water and got choke a little. Hopefully she'll do better the next lesson and not develop fear of it.

Looking forward to Sunday for her third lesson. Didn't allow her to attend last sunday's lesson as she's down with fever bug. Hopefully she'll catch up and be excited for lesson!
